ROUND 5 Proposed team

So thinking of following through with the threat to overhaul the team. We have 17 unused players in the squad. So keep 3 in with a shot of medals, which means Cameron, Kelly and Whitfield. This results in the following team:

B: Matt Buntine - Jake Stein - Sam Reid
HB: Callum Brown - Lachlan Keeffe - Connor Idun
C: Jye Caldwell - Tommy Sheridan - Lachie Whitfield
HF: Xavier O'Halloran - Ian Hill - Jack Buckley
F: Zach Sproule - Jeremy Cameron - Kieren Briggs
Foll: Shane Mumford - Josh Kelly - Matthew Flynn

INT: Nick Shipley - Tom Hutchesson

Are you on board with me desecrating the team like this? All the usuals will come back in Round 6.

The e-NEAFL team had a cracking game yesterday, Buntine always gets me nervous though

Good to see Sam back in the side hopefully can cement his spot and keep heater out and Sheridan get his crack in the middle

Look forward to Mummy causing havoc at every contest

Hill would have to be the smallest CHF in e-AFL history, will defiantly add some pace in the forward line

Solved it:

B: Jake Stein - Lachlan Keeffe - Sam Reid
HB: Callum Brown - Kieren Briggs - Connor Idun
C: Jye Caldwell - Tommy Sheridan - Lachie Whitfield
HF: Xavier O'Halloran - Zach Sproule - Jack Buckley
F: Tom Hutchesson - Jeremy Cameron - Ian Hill
Foll: Shane Mumford - Josh Kelly - Matthew Flynn

INT: Nick Shipley - Matt Buntine

Reasoning:
- Briggs, at 200cm and training as a backline, can provide some key height at the back so Buntine can go to the interchange. Keeffe moves to middle as well due to this height
- Up top, Sproule is taller as well, Hutchesson and Hill can be the smaller forwards buzzing around the pocket.
- Flynn is there for the many times Mummy concedes frees

I think there's a better balance here.

ROUND 5 RESULTS

St Kilda Saints : 16.11.107
Greater Western Sydney Giants : 6.8.44

There is nothing good to say about this performance. Callum Brown got 24 disposals and 8 marks, but none of the youngsters put their hand up for inclusion in the first team and the regulars are bound to come back.

ROUND 6 Proposed team

So now 0-1-4, so I’ll go back to the Round 4 team. Langdon didn’t do well though so Himmelberg goes for him (with Finlayson ready to come in future), and Ward for Hately.

B: Lachlan Ash - Sam Taylor - Nick Haynes
HB: Zac Williams - Phil Davis - Heath Shaw
C: Callan Ward - Stephen Coniglio - Lachie Whitfield
HF: Toby Greene - Jake Riccardi - Tim Taranto
F: Brent Daniels - Jeremy Cameron - Harry Himmelberg
Foll: Sam Jacobs - Josh Kelly - Jacob Hopper

INT: Matt de Boer - Adam Kennedy

Any news I should be aware of?

ROUND 6 RESULTS

Greater Western Sydney Giants : 24.12.156
Carlton Blues : 17.8.110

It's a great news day:
- First win
- Coming back from 40+ points down (we really don't start well)
- 5 goals for Jezza
- Richmond lost, so we're not bottom and overtaken the Tiges
- Callums_Guns 's wife had a baby.
- It's his.

ROUND 7 proposed team

I mean, HH didn't have a good game. But unchanged, right??

ROUND 7 RESULT

Brisbane Lions : 16.16.112
Greater Western Sydney Giants : 12.10.82

Good game, just ran away from us in final quarter. Slight suspicion of home bias with the free count. HH missed his chance, getting MINUS ONE fantasy point.

ROUND 8 Proposed team

Team performed decently, however HH has to go. Nick Haynes has had a couple of quiet games as well so Harry Perryman can come back too.

HB: Zac Williams - Phil Davis - Heath Shaw
C: Callan Ward - Stephen Coniglio - Lachie Whitfield
HF: Toby Greene - Jake Riccardi - Tim Taranto
F: Brent Daniels - Jeremy Cameron - Jeremy Finlayson
Foll: Sam Jacobs - Josh Kelly - Jacob Hopper

INT: Matt de Boer - Adam Kennedy

B:
Sam Reid - Sam Taylor - Harry Perryman
HB: Zac Williams - Phil Davis - Heath Shaw
C: Callan Ward - Stephen Coniglio - Lachie Whitfield
HF: Toby Greene - Jake Riccardi - Tim Taranto
F: Ian Hill - Jeremy Cameron - Jeremy Finlayson
Foll: Sam Jacobs - Josh Kelly - Jacob Hopper

Daniels had a quiet one so let's inject some pace in with Hill. Ash has low TOG so needs a rest. Bring back Reid for some experience.

Happy to hear thoughts!
